Default Re: Collection agency

I wish to inform you that as the credit card default occurred in KSA, the courts in Philippines may not have jurisdiction in this matter. The judgment in KSA may be filed in the court in Philippines for recognition and enforcement. Article 315 of the Revised Penal Code of the Philippines makes a person liable for estafa (swindling). Further, in the case of George L. Tubb vs. People of the Philippines et, al., G.R. No. L-9811 dated April 22, 1957, the Supreme Court convicted the accused of the crime of estafa, as defined and penalized under Article 315, subsection 1 (b), of the Revised Penal Code for misappropriating. It is essential however, to establish that there is deceit or fraud on the part of the accused. You may contact an attorney and seek further guidance in the matter.

In this case the collection agency of KSA bank could not initiate a case against you in your home country for the unpaid debt in KSA. Their threat of initiating criminal case only collection tactics and they have no legal standing to file the case in your home country.
